Hard to believe, but Rick Springfield turns 62 today. Born Richard Springthorpe on 8/23/1949 in Sydney, Australia. By the early 80's, Springfield was pulling double-duty as a rock star and a well-known soap star. Remember Dr. Noah Drake on General Hospital? Although Springfield hasn't had any radio hits in quite sometime, he is still making music and has a yearly Boat Cruise where fans can hang with him. To celebrate Rick's birthday, I thought I would share my top 5 favorite Springfield songs.

(ed note: since we are all very familiar with Jessie's Girl, I have decided to omit this from the list. Rick did win a Best Male Vocal Grammy for that song)


Love Somebody

(1984) Billboard #5



Rick attempted to take on a starring role in a movie about a rock star, called 'Hard To Hold.' The soundtrack fared better then the movie. This would be the biggest single off that album.



Affair Of The Heart

(1983) Billboard #9



This comes off the album, 'Living in Oz.'



Love Is Alright Tonight

(1981) Billboard #20



3rd single off his 'Working Class Dog' album.

(ed note: Springfield is a huge dog lover and his dog Ron is featured on this album cover, along with his follow up, 'Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet.')



I’ve Done Everything For You

(1981) Billboard #8



This was the follow up to 'Jessie's Girl.' It was written by Sammy Hagar.




(1984) Billboard #27



This was originally recorded in 1978. Springfield claims this is autobiographical about being mistaken for Bruce Springsteen.
